New Year, New Wardrobe

WELLINGTON (UPI) A New Zealand homeless man accused of obscene exposure has been released on bail with one important condition - he must wear underwear.

Ben Hana, known in Wellington as the Blanket Man due to his choice of a blanket and a loincloth as clothing, was released on bail Wednesday in Wellington District Court after his Dec. 23 arrest for obscene exposure and cannabis possession.

Maxine Dixon, Hana's lawyer, said her client "wears high-risk clothing. It's a way of life rather than a deliberate attempt at lewdness."
